The Denver Broncos' general manager grabbed the top-ranked defensive player in the NFL draft Thursday night when North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb fell to Denver at No. 5.
A stunned Elway said "zero" of his mock draft scenarios had Chubb falling into his lap to the thrill of superstar Von Miller and giving coach Vance Joseph the ultimate problem for a coach: an abundance of pass rushers.
Chubb will play outside linebacker in Denver where he's expected to immediately upgrade a defense that ranked third last season but surrendered a whopping 29 TD passes.
The Broncos own three more picks in the top 100, including the 40th overall selection in the second round and a pair of third-rounders Friday.
Elway, who signed Keenum in free agency last month, needs more playmakers for an anemic offense. He has said he'll target a running back after releasing C.J. Anderson.
